Students Take Action In Their Communities

Students Take Action In Their Communities
The lack of community resilience uncovered by the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgency needed to respond and prepare for local climate change threats. From transportation to reliable and affordable energy, climate concerns touch every part of our lives, often leading people to feel overwhelmed.

This summer, a team of Youth Energy Squad (YES) students recognized that awareness and education were the most important factors in helping their communities take action. The self-named Climate Action Warriors partnered with the City of Detroit’s Green Task Force and local consultants to present the most important information about climate change via several mediums, including social media posts, flyers, and a climate guide.

Students shared this information with their partners and presented it to a group of more than 75 teachers and community educators as an example of how they could address climate change through their curriculum, even in a remote environment. DFCU Financial is proud to sponsor programs like this through Detroit Public Schools Foundation's EcoWorks program.
